Panama Crossroads Festival is a space for people to connect through music and shared experiences. We welcome people from all over with open arms, regardless of race, gender and sexuality, as long as they come with a positive attitude.
Here are some essential house rules. Please, read:
People at Panama Crossroads are free to dress how they want, be who they want to be, and love who they want to love. We want everyone to be able to freely be themselves without judgment. Take care of each other, treat everyone with respect, embrace openness, and celebrate together.
If you experience or witness any sexist, racist or homophobic behaviour, or if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or vulnerable, please let us know. The security team will be available to assist you, but you are welcome to contact any member of staff. Bar staff, security, DJs, we are all on the same team. Panama Crossroads is a safe space and we will protect it preciously.
At Panama Crossroads you can enjoy a wide selection of artists. From the biggest international acts to local heroes, this is a great opportunity for you to discover new music, genres and artists.
If you see that there is an artist that you have not heard before, rest assured that there are reasons for it to be there. We take great care in programming and musical curatorship. Get out of your comfort zone, your new favorite artist may be waiting for you there.
Panama Crossroads is an escape from the everyday, make the most of it. If you’re on the dance floor, put your phone away. Dance, interact with the people around you, let yourself go and enjoy the moment.
Take care of the locations
The locations are incredibly beautiful and cozy, but remember that we share in spaces of important historical value. Be kind and leave the place in the same or better condition than when you arrived.
Take care of the environment
Be aware of your surroundings and take care of where you are. We are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to experience these locations with our favorite music, so don’t take it for granted.
Having fun can be sustainable. Don’t throw away your cigarette butts, use the garbage cans, bring your reusable cup, collect any plastic you see and help us keep these beautiful places in perfect condition.
Panama Crossroads uses the Cashless payment system. Your bracelet has an RFID chip which you can recharge to make purchases at the bar. This is the safest way to use your money on the spot. It also means fewer lines and more dancing.
Please note that there are some small fees to cover part of the costs of running the Cashless system
Your bracelet should stay securely attached to your wrist. There shouldn’t be any reason for you to lose it before the event is over. You must treat your bracelet as if it were cash or a bank card.
In our experience, it is very very rare for one of the bracelets to break. If you lose it, we will not be able to recover any balance.
